Violence & Scariness

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this reality series is about manipulation and mind games. Participants regularly lie, confront each other, and critique individual differences. Some are labeled and treated as outcasts after their dark secrets are revealed. Tweens, like adults, may have a voyeuristic fascination with this bizarre experience, but seeing participants fall to pieces and express extreme anger with others will be hard for younger viewers to watch.
Is It Any Good?
Like many other reality shows, Unan1mous is about strategy. Participants say that they'll vote for a certain deserving person -- such as the 42-year-old truck driver who has worked hard since the age of 20 to provide a decent life for his wife and kids -- but then someone will secretly change his or her vote, and hopes are dashed before our eyes. Other contestants lie about their personal circumstances in an attempt to influence the vote (for example, one participant tells the others that he has cancer). Most of the participants just want out of the bunker -- but if anyone leaves, the money will automatically be cut in half, thus changing the outcome for the others.
Contestants need communication, perception, and flexibility to get along with their fellow bunkermates. These are important qualities for tweens (and teens) to learn about, but watching participants cry into the camera saying that they miss their families is too sad for younger viewers to bear.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
